The Sheboygan Falls School District 4-year-old kindergarten staff set up a Go Jo Day for a student battling leukemia on Friday, Nov. 21.

The 4-K staff invited all staff and students to wear orange in support of Jo’s battle.

Anyone wearing orange was asked to give a small monetary donation, in the hopes of raising some money for his family to make the holidays a little bit easier.

“I have cried so many times this morning and I can honestly tell you all I’ve never been more proud to be a part of this district,” 4-K teacher Sarah Brotz said during Go Jo Day.
